A good trick for detangling is to use a wide-tooth comb. Use one hand to hold your hair and one hand to brush your hair. Start brushing from the ends to the scalp, and always brush your extensions in an upward position.
Avoid over-washing your extensions
Over-washing hair extensions causes unnecessary damage. You should wash your hair extensions at least once every 1-2 weeks, depending on your hair type.

Apply conditioner to the ends of the hair- use a deep conditioning mask once a week
Conditioner helps to restore hydration of your hair stands, especially hair ends. Conditioners should be applied after every shampoo routine. It is best to use a leave-in conditioner after drying so that helps to moisturize your hair.
